Finally I got the package and have installed them. These covers are thin but have a good finish. Installation is done using thin 3M tape supplied with the covers.

The fit is perfect but since these are overlays i.e. you install them over your existing mirror covers, you need to slightly cut the bottom part to adjust for the mirror movement. This small cut is in the bottom and not visible at all so you don't have to worry about the finishing. I have attached the cut marks given to me by another member "M_528i" for reference

Initial test fit, cutting and final installation took me around 20 minutes total. These CF covers look great and being thin, its hard to notice that these are overlays! Here are some pictures of the installation from different angles.

















Special thanks to forum member "M_528i" for this picture and directions
